Description:

1st Printing. 143 pages. Published in 1991. Exhibition Monograph, presented as an Artist Book. One of the best books on the art of Robert Wilson. The first and only edition. Published simultaneously with the Hardcover Edition in a small and limited print run as a softcover original. While the First Softcover Edition was not originally issued with the CD that is an integral element of the production, this copy comes with it, in its own jewel case. A brilliant collaboration between the artist and composer: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Art by Robert Wilson. The works are set to original music by Hans Peter Kuhn in an accompanying CD. Essays by Trevor Fairbrother, "The Night Before The Day" and "Robert Wilson: A Chronological Essay". Contributions by other creative forces who have collaborated with Wilson: "Robert Wilson" by William S. Burroughs; "A Parsifal", a full-length play, by Susan Sontag; and "Images For Robert Wilson" by Richard Serra. Selected Bibliography by Virginia Abblitt. Essay on Hans Peter Kuhn by Peter Barr. Printed on pristine-white, archival stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the landmark exhibition of the same name held at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston in 1991, which travelled on to other major American cities. Presents "Robert Wilson's Vision". The finest and most representative works of Robert Wilson, the artist/genius who is widely acknowledged to be the most important living figure in stage direction and design. His contribution is arrestingly simple: Wilson has inseparably fused the roles of "director", "designer", and "artist", resulting in a visual approach to dramatic narrative that gives formal interdependence among light, space, and sound. Sculptures, drawings, videos, and installation works (including Wilson's seminal "the CIVIL warS") are shown together with other works that can be experienced, not just seen, in this Artist Book because of Wilson's sensory, tactile approach. The homage-contributions of fellow artists completes the retrospective. Robert Wilson's achievement is matched (but not surpassed) by the greatest creative forces of contemporary theater: Ariane Mnouchkine, Eiko Ishioka, Julie Taymor, Elizabeth LeCompte, Pina Bausch, and Peter Brook. There is, by now, a library on Wilson's ground-breaking work. This book is a cut above the rest. An absolute "must-have" title for Robert Wilson collectors. This title is a great collection. This copy of the First Softcover Edition uniquely comes with the CD and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, pristine beauties. A scarce set thus. One of the greatest creators of the theater of our time. A fine set. ISBN 0878463240. Bookseller Inventory # 16147
